Termites (sometimes called white-ants) are one of the most damaging pests in all of Australia.
What’s worse is most Australian insurance companies won’t cover termite damage – claiming that it is ‘maintenance’! This is why it’s paramount to ensure your building has adequate protection against these nasty little pests.
Termites feed on dead plant material – which is most often wood! A typical colony contains nymphs, workers, soldiers, and reproductive individuals of both sexes (called kings and queens). The kings and queens grow wings, allowing them to fly to find an appropriate home for their new colony. You don’t want this to be your building!
While called white-ants, termites are actually far-distant relatives to the ant. In fact, recent research have proved that termites are of the cockroach order (Blattodea).
